The Hunger Games

hunger-games

Trinis does always overdo it. We cyah say ‘oh my’ we hadda say ‘OH GAAD OYE!’, we cyah go a free drinks party without bussin’ de bar, and when we get a holiday on a Thursday YUH KNOW we hadda take the Friday off too (just wait and see all who call in ‘sick’ after Divali this week). This innate overreaction manifests itself in all aspects of our lives, including acts of protest. Case in point, the woman who camp outside HDC head office because…

#HistoricTimes should really be trending in my local Twitter feed! Some people don’t realize it but our young people a ‘lil too aware to not pick up on the fact that 2014 and de whole lead up, is history in the making. De 70’s had Black power and labour revolutions #uprising De 80’s had drugs, growth of the middle class then the shrink of recession #ReaganCocaineNARAIDS 90’s had badness, #coup, the global link up and information explosions The 00’s and teens has just well been…

10 Hornin’ Facts

Cheating-1

As Trinis we are very accustomed to the concept (and practice) of hornin’! It is the fodder for soca and kaiso annually, the cause of heated debate at work, the explanation for why your little sister’s hair has a markedly different texture to yours etc. etc . With celebrity couples dropping like flies in 2014, see Nick and Mariah, Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks, Wiz and Amber & yuh neighbour horning her husband breathless daily, SCORCH has decided to explore infidelity and we came up…

The Snappening: You thought you were safe?

IMG_2961

So you survived the stress and worries of “The Fappening” and you saying to yourself yuh GT. For those of you living under The Rock of Gibraltar and don’t know about “The Fappening”, it was when Apple’s iCloud server was hacked and a bunch of nude celebrity photos were posted online. This also led to every Tom, Dick & Harry joining in and posting very intimate pics of their exes, outside ting and/or chile mudda using the hashtag #thefappening. Yuh would think you might have…

Where on Earth is Olivia Pope????

scandal-season-4-star-kerry-washington

*SPOILER ALERT* Is about dam time…. Like true Trinis, we love a good bacchanal, so it was no surprise that we were over excited for Scandal Season 4 premiere. Not that our government doh provide enough Scandal but somehow we prefer to indulge in the work of Shonda Rhimes. The episode got off to a steamy start as we see Jake, all up inside curly haired Olivia’s legs on a private island. Upon receiving a letter with her wine shipment (Olivia is def bout that…

Condoms, Buckets & Mampees… What Do They All Have in Common?

chick v 4

So… unless you’ve been living under a rock – but more likely, a mosquito net – you’ll know that there’s a new virus that have Trinis dropping like flies called Chickungunya or Chick V for short. With Miami Carnival coming up, we at Scorch trying our best to avoid catching it so we decided to stock up on mosquito repellent. But after making ah turn in Hi-Lo Massy stores to cop some OFF!, we find de shelf empty like ah Ministry on a Friday afternoon!…

SPOTTED: Trinidad and Tobago’s First Lady, Mrs. Reema Carmona

H.E.-Mrs-Reema-Carmona-being-interviewed-by-Allure-etc

Now, doh get me wrong, the outfit looked ‘lil nice… but Madame First Lady was NOT at Soca in Moka when this picture was taken, but at a side event of the UN’s General Assembly 2014 in New York City WITH the wife of UN Secretary General. So many things we NEED to know… Who put her in this? What her belly doin outside? Where did they think she was going? When did they decide this would be okay? Whyyy? Just, Why? Between this and…

Kimye Boobed?

MAIN-Kanye-West-Kim-Kardashian-cleavage

So Kimye are apparently making their rounds at Paris Fashion Week, *lifestyles of the rich and famous and surgically bodacious* but umm Kanye has always been notorious for his rather risque choices in fashion and it hasn’t let up one bit on his Paris trip… In the midst of photographers hecklin at the couple for being late to a show and runnin round trying to rescue his woman from crazy sickafants, he is seen here looking rather relaxed and boobalicious sitting at a Lanvin show…

Whey meh car?

140527-infographic-car-theft-cover_e8ee7b1c795d687ca758020691c28113

So by now in 2014 everyone has witnessed a car being towed or had their very own car wrecked by these wretched machines on wheels with an attached arm of doom, whom by the way travel in pairs and remove a car from a spot faster than a Soaka ticket from a promoter’s hand. So whether you get a ‘bess park’ and make a small turn in Frankie’s on a Friday night to ole talk with your padnas or maybe you took a chance to…
